The Maple Leaf Forever-Symbol of a Nation's Spirit. From backpackers in Berlin to peacekeepers in Pakistan, Canadians are immediately identifiable by a singular image they faithfully sport on pins, badges, and appliqués: the maple leaf. This botanical symbol has represented Canada and Canadians for nearly three hundred years. Historians generally recognize the adoption of the maple leaf by Quebec's Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste in Montreal in 1836 as the first official use of the symbol to represent an element of Canadian culture. The symbol was soon popularized in print, song, and in the small emblems (such as lapel pins) with which Canadian residents of various origins honored their homelands.The English had their roses, the Scots their thistle, the Irish their shamrocks, and the French their fleur-de-lis - but native-born Canadians quickly chose the sturdy yet ornate maple leaf. The idea of including the maple leaf on Canada's national flag took root with Lester B. Pearson in World War I, when he noted that every Canadian battalion had included some form of the maple leaf in its insignia. Fifty years later, in 1965, under his leadership as prime minister, Canada's famous red-and-white maple leaf flag was born. In addition to the maple leaf's presence on various provincial flags and coats of arms, the country's coinage has featured maple leaves, wreaths, and boughs in various forms for most of Canada's history. In fact, the maple leaf was present on all Canadian coins from 1876 to 1901. Since that time, it has always appeared on Canadian pennies, and numerous other Canadian numismatic coins.
